Grandweld delivers offshore vessel to ADNOC

Grandweld, a United Arab Emirates shipyard, delivered one dive maintenance and support vessel TAWAM1 to the state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) on November 24.

Grandweld both designed and built the 50m long vessel with a 65-ton bollard pull capability after signing a contract with ADNOC in December 2013. TAWAM1 will be operated by ADNOC’s group company, Abu Dhabi Petroleum Ports Operating Company (IRSHAD).

TAWAM1 is equipped with anchor handling equipment and an offshore lifting crane with a capacity of 35 ton at 7.5m reach. This will be utilised to manoeuvre heavy lift items such as gravity anchors, mooring buoys and SBM hoses.

In addition, the vessel, which can accommodate up to 30 crew, is fitted with integrated diving systems and is classified by DNV GL, the international certification body and classification society, to fire fighting capability class 1.

Grandweld’s delivery to ADNOC comes after the recent deliveries of a 42m Aluminium Crew Boat to Global Marine Operation Co and a Crane Workboat to Kuwait Oil Company (its fourth for the customer).
